poached eggs and hash browns: inspired in part by a true champion

Posted by ernie on March 31, 2008

that’s right, after last week’s visit to the home of someone who can actually cook, i was left with the desire to make poached eggs. i’ve always enjoyed poached eggs – and poaching eggs – but struggled to find a good use. my sister-in-law was able to do so, and sarah and i were lucky enough to be there.

but this is not that.

this is this.

holy crepes!

i don’t think i told you about my crepes.  i made them a few weeks ago.  and here is their tale.

i had the desire for a pancake breakfast.  but pancakes would not do.  yes, i’m aware of how little sense that makes, but i’m hoping you understand.  you wake up and you think, man i really want some of that creamy doughie goodness, but not the heaviness.  so what’s a hungry person to do?

crepes.

on tonight’s menu: more eggs.

eggs! form of, quiche!

inspired by food television, i decided to tackle my first quiche. i’ve had delicious quiche before, but never made it myself. in general, my “first time” endeavors into fooding are riddled with regret, remorse, and night terrors. in short: hunger wins.

tonight would be different. tonight i would tackle my foe with unfettered valor. i would not hold back and i would not back down. tonight i would hack and slash and bake until the agents of my pantry were sufficiently subdued.

tonight would be a long hard battle against the forces of egg and hunger.

lazy sunday…actual dinner and a movie

unnecessary caption to describe obvious food product.

sunday was not the greatest day for food blogging. but i guess i’ll do a quick run-through of what went down.

the morning started with hash browns and a banana strawberry smoothie again. mmm…tasty.

we had lunch at sarah’s parent’s place. meatloaf all around. i put mine on some rye bread. mmm…tasty.

then we watched Charlie Bartlett. enjoyable, though not quite as good as i had anticipated. i didn’t think i liked robert downey jr, but i think this may have changed my mind.

after the film, we stopped at panera bread for some soup. good news and bad news there. their broccoli cheddar and tomato soups are always delicious, but they were approaching closing time. so there was no good bread left. the soup was not piping hot like it usually is, though i can’t complain about that. and finally, the asiago bread bits they gave us for the tomato soup were noticeably stale. but the deliciousness of the soup was enough for me. i don’t know if that’s enough to be considered “dinner and a movie” but either way: mmm…tasty.

saturday morning: hash browns

Posted by ernie on February 24, 2008

so there we were. a lazy saturday morning, putting off getting up for as long as we possible could. and that’s when she said it. those 4 fateful words.

“wanna make hash browns?”

“oh hellz yeah,” i thought. “i’m all up ons.”

of course what i actually said was “great idea honey, and some scrambled eggs to boot.” but when i write the movie of my life, it’ll come out that first way.
